Obama: US must retrain workers who lose jobs

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says all American workers deserve to know that if they lose their jobs, their country will assist them train for a better one.

In his weekly radio & Internet address, Obama says Congress has taken steps in the right direction by approving job-training legislation. But he says there's much more the U.S. can do for the middle class & those aspiring to join it.

Obama says Vice President Joe Biden next week will release a report on how the U.S. can improve its job-training system. The president says he'll visit a Los Angeles community college where workers are being retrained for jobs in health care.

p>In the Republican address, Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana says Obama should encourage Senate Democrats to pass House-approved bills to put Americans back to work.
